Bins & Waste

Garden Waste Collections

The new garden waste subscription service started on 1 April 2024. If you have not paid for the new service, your garden bin will no longer be collected.

For residents that have subscribed, the day and schedule that your garden waste bin is collected will not change. Please have your bin out ready for collection before 6.30am on the day, as collection times may vary with the implementation of the new service.

Please allow 2 weeks for us to process your subscription, add you to our systems and send out your subscription sticker. Once you are added to our systems, you will be included on the collection rounds.

This is our A-Z guide to help you recycle, reuse or dispose of different kinds of rubbish and other materials.

You can browse the list or search for a specific item by typing it into the Search box below. If you can't find an item, please email us at wasteminimisation@huntingdonshire.gov.uk - we will let you know how to dispose of it and add the item to the list.
